Thread: Looking for PAR

    Default Looking for PAR

    Hi,

    I'm looking for the program PAR. It's a paragraph reformatter: http://www.nicemice.net/par/ or something equivalent.

    Can't find it in the yast repos including packman.

    If I need to recompile myself, what do I need to install for doing my own compiles?

    Thanks

    Syv

    Then, from the View button choose Patterns. Scroll down at left to Development. You will at least need Basic Development, but probably also C/C++ Development.

    Hi
    Since an application already exist for par (an archiving utility), it is called vim-par...

    I have it built;
    Project: https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...ESTING/vim-par
    Download: https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...2.6.x86_64.rpm

    The PAR I'm looking for is not a archiving utility. It's a paragraph reformatter and the website dfor it is: http://www.nicemice.net/par/

    Hi
    Yes, as I said, it is the application your looking for, it's called vim-par since it clashes with a name already in use... look at the project and the spec file which shows it comes from nicemice.net
